Family Entertainment: AMF Bowling Renews with Kronos® to Keep the Ball Rolling on Great Hiring


Kronos® Incorporated announced that AMF Bowling Centers, Inc., the world’s largest owner and operator of bowling centers, has signed a multi-year renewal contract for the Kronos hiring solution.

News Facts

Since 2006, AMF Bowling has leveraged the Kronos hiring solution to improve the quality and productivity of the company’s 9, 000 employees within 302 bowling centers. 

Prior to using Kronos, AMF had a totally manual, paper-based hiring process. Candidates had to go into a center and fill out a paper application. AMF was not getting the volume of applications it felt it should, and managers were spending too much time on hiring that would be better spent managing their center. With Kronos, the pool of applicants is bigger and better. The time to fill an open position has been reduced significantly and the company is already recognizing labor cost savings and increased productivity. 

AMF uses Twitter to publicize job openings. With a totally paper-based process, there was nowhere to direct people to apply online. Now they have a robust online application process hosted by Kronos that enhances their social media recruiting strategy.
